Pretoria

SPECTACULAR FINALE IN SOUTH AFRICA
Josh Sheehan - Seatgrab Flip
Intro

Like an ancient temple adorning over the city it governs, the Union Buildings, located in the heart of Pretoria, will be the backdrop for the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour first-ever finale on African soil. The modern day acropolis is the official seat of the South African government and also serves as the offices to the president of South Africa. The buildings, designed by Sir Herbert Baker, were completed over a hundred years ago (in 1913) and now occupy the highest point in Pretoria and constitute a South African national heritage site.

Pretoria is a city in the northern part of Gauteng Province in South Africa. It is one of the country's three capital cities, serving as the executive (administrative) and de facto national capital. The others are Cape Town, the legislative capital, and Bloemfontein, the judicial capital. The city is divided into three sections: West, East, and North. The pretty, laid-back city of Pretoria is the site of the presidential inauguration of South African leader and Nelson Mandela and carries a remarkable amount of history for its age.
